4/23 | Marbled Leather Journals with Temerity!
When: Saturday, April 23, 12 PM
Where: ROW DTLA
What We’re Doing: Experience the wonders of marbling, a magical, spontaneous art form that creates beautiful one-of-a-kind surfaces. We will use a traditional method of marbling in a water bath, floating our paints on the surface to achieve fluid, dynamic patterns. Students will begin with a color exploration, building color palettes, and making practice prints. Then, we will marble and assemble a vegetable-tanned leather journal cover, which we will hand finish for a beautiful artisanal effect. Each person will learn about working with leather tools, how to sew a saddle stitch, and how to condition and protect the leather for years of use. Perfect for travel, reflection, notes, poems, songs, and sketches - these re-fillable journal covers are a lovely companion for your thoughts.
Students will leave with recipes and instructions for continuing the marbling process at home, on leather, paper, or fabric!
Includes an unlined 240-page journal.
